“We are firm believers that parents are children’s primary educators and we aim to support them as their most trusted partner. At Ambassadors, close parent involvement in their child’s education is important to ease the child’s transition out of the home and to provide parents with the comfort that their most valuable assets are thriving in a safe, caring and professional environment. It is also crucial to expand the child’s learning and development experience once he or she leaves the school.
For this purpose, we developed a comprehensive parents’ involvement program that starts from the child’s first day at school and extends throughout his or her time with the Ambassadors. Examples of items in this program include:
Parents induction workshop: attended by groups of 5-10 this workshop is aimed at introducing parents to the key concepts of the Montessori Method and the Ambassadors program
Parent-Teacher introduction: a personal meeting between the child’s directresses and the parents during the first week of school
Teacher call-back: a feedback call by the teacher within 2-weeks of the beginning of the academic year to reassure parents about the integration of their child with the rest of the class
Monthly child progress: a personal summary by the directresses on the child’s most notable areas of progress, learning style preferences as well as any other remarks.
Quarterly meeting with the Principal: a detailed one-on-one session with the Principal and the directresses to discuss and refine any learning and or focus objectives for the child for the upcoming terms.
Open Door Policy for parents: parents are welcome to stop by at any time to pay a visit to their children's classroom as well as to meet the Principal to discuss any matters of relevance to them.
